PA Republicans Fight ‘Ghost Teachers’ This Halloween

The Daily Caller cites Trey Kovacs on how teachers who allowed release time to do union work is creating huge costs for the government.

The policy is costly on the federal level as well. According to Trey Kovacs, a policy analyst at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, it cost the federal government at least $1 billion between 1998 and 2013. The exact amount may be much higher, however, due to bad recordkeeping and a lack of transparency.
